Twenty8Twelve debuted it's Fall/Winter 2009 Ready-to-Wear collection. The line is designed by actress Sienna Miller and her sister Savannah.

Sienna Miller became famous for two things: dating and being cheated on by Jude Law, and for being a trend setter, most notably being the leader of the boho-chic revolution which saw a lot of imitators from Mary-Kate Olsen to Lindsay Lohan.

"It started off as a grunge collection in one direction, then as a glam collection in the other," said Sienna, "and then it all met somewhere in the middle."

The line certainly hasn't struggled like most new designers. It helps to have a noticeable name attached to a brand. It also doesn't hurt to have the financial backing of a Spanish jeanswear manufacturer that is also behind Pepe jeans.

There's nothing extremely innovative with the collection. It consists of tights, skinny jeans. leather jackets, vests and t-shirts. The colour palatte is minimal, consisting of mostly blacks, nudes, and greys.

The staple of the line is their leather jackets, which don't retail for more than $500.The other standout of the collection is a great emerald green sparly backless dress, which Sienna wore to the 2009 MTV Movie Awards.
Canadian collection alert! One of the models is hockey player turned runway model and Brooklin, Ontario native Taryn Davidson:
